[WWE News] Kelly Kelly Released
WWE announced today that Kelly Kelly has been released from the company. Kelly, real name Barbara Blank, joined the company in 2006 and debuted for the ECW brand as an exhibitionist who was always at odds with her “boyfriend” Mike Knox. After that she bounced around from feud to feud, winning the Divas Championship on one occasion and becoming one of the most popular Divas on the WWE roster.
Kelly returned to the WWE last month after taking the summer off, but outside of a TV match and an appearance at Summerslam she was all but a ghost in the company. Ultimately it won’t be a big loss for the WWE but part of me is disappointed; although I wasn’t a huge fan of her, she was a hard worker and had consistently gotten better in the ring over the years. Plus it always sucks when the Divas division loses another wrestler; they’re running with a skeleton crew as it is.
Will you miss Kelly Kelly?
